Lemnos and the Anzacs - Glen Eira Historical Society Address - Carnegie Library, 8pm, 22nd July 2015

You are all invited to come and hear my presentation to the Glen Eira Historical Society on the theme - Walking in the Footsteps of the Anzacs: Australia comes to Lemnos 1915-2015.
Not only will I be speaking on the important links between Lemnos and Australia's Anzac story but also how this connection reaches into communities across Australia - including the Melbourne community of Glen Eira. These include Private Horace Harton (pictured above, AWM image) of the 23rd Battalion who is buried in Lemnos' East Mudros Military Cemetery and Sister Gertrude Davis (pictured below, AWM image) who served with Matron Grace Wilson at the 3rd Australian General Hospital on Lemnos in 1915 - both connected to the Elsternwick area of Glen Eira.
The address will take place at 8pm on Wednesday, 22nd July 2015, in the Boyd Room, Carnegie Library, Carnegie.
